“Turkey Can Be the Technology Base of the Region”
Underlining that Turkey is within a 1,5-hour flight distance to an economy of 24 billion people and a gross national product of $4 trillion, with its proximity to major markets including the European Union, MENA and Central Asia, Mobilefest Fair Coordinator Soner Şeker said: According to him, the development of the IT sector in a country is of great importance in terms of being a mature market. Soner Şeker said, “The IT sector market in Turkey is constantly growing in terms of investments, number of employees and government supports. In the industry, the number of software manufacturers has exceeded 150.000 and most of them are under the age of 35. Turkey's talent pool is growing day by day with engineers and software manufacturers and is supported by important projects such as “1 Million Software Developers”. While it is possible to find technological solutions and suppliers under more favorable terms in Turkey compared to their counterparts abroad, investment costs are also very reasonable. Especially during the Covid-19 crisis, while technology companies experiencing disruptions in their supply chains were looking for new locations, Turkey has become one of the top choices in this sense. We, as Mobilefest, aim to demonstrate Turkey's growing power in the field of technology.” makes a statement.

In this context, we aim to strengthen the ties between the two countries by bringing Chinese technology companies together at this great event.” makes a statement.
